NJ man charged in Va. fake ID case

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A New Jersey man faces charges of participating in a Virginia-based operation that sold fake IDs to thousands of college students across the country.

Nineteen-year-old Michael A. Delrio of Edison, N.J., is charged with conspiracy to commit document fraud.

The Daily Progress (http://bit.ly/1b8Rm7l ) reports that Delrio pleaded not guilty on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville.

Court records show that Delrio was arrested Sept. 19 in New Jersey. He is accused of building a website to help three Charlottesville residents streamline their fake ID enterprise, which raked in more than $3 million.

All three co-defendants pleaded guilty on Sept. 4 to conspiracy to commit identification document fraud and aggravated identity theft. They’re scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 16.
